OK, I'm seriously pissed off. The job just cut my pay by $16. a month due to a reassessment of hour allocation for shift differential. I've had it. I've put up with more crap since our management change and this is just one more example of how a good job can be ruined by incompetant management. I want to chuck it all and go back to college and finish my degree. I expect I'll have at least 3 years to go and I will likely have to work while going to school. I'd like to get something in network security or network management/engineering but.... and this is a kicker... I have an eighth grade math capability and all the curricula I see require advanced mathematics like calculus and trigonometery. I currently work as a network support technician but feel I'm against the wall without a bachelor's degree. I'm not earning what I need and there doesn't appear to be any advancement. I'd like some ideas about going to school as close to full-time as possible while working full-time as well. There are no schools near where I am so I will have to move somewhere else. I'm not married and don't have a family so I can pretty much just uproot and go. My problems, as I see it, are that I don't have the math ability to get the degree I want nor do I have a job that allows me to work and go to school at the same time. At this point I'm desperate. At 38 I know this will be big but I'm sick of living paycheck-to-paycheck and every year earning less versus the cost of living in my area (which is skyrocketing). In any event, I can't afford to live here unless my employer coughs-up a big raise but even then I don't see any career path. Our company stopped career pathing at the management change along with some other goodies . Has anyone done this? Just chucked it all to go back to school to try and earn more money when you get out? I'm pretty nervous about this and getting financial aid and my chances of completing the curriculum I want with my math disability. Would schools let that slide if I had proof? Ugh.... I'm hating life about now.
